Birdie !!

Great ! I’ve a brilliant idea for this post and it’s not about cats as Samantha is too good !


I’ve got half an hour before I go down to the local store.

It’s a beautiful sunny autumn day. The wind is strong and cool, so I only have one french door slightly open.

Both cats are cuddling, curled up in the same basket …….


….. and I’m looking through Shey’s latest post.


All is well. Quiet. Homely.








There is a bird in the house. It’s whizzing round ……


…… in the salon …..


…… in the bedroom ……



……. in the kitchen …..



…… it’s mayhem !

I add to the madness by running around opening the doors and windows !


Trapping the bird in a corner, I pick it up and release it back into the wild Spanish landscape.



The cats are exhausted, flopped out …….



…… while I restore the rug armageddon.






Whew !


Okay cats ! What type of bird was it ?


No ! It wasn’t a Terrydoctor Sonic !



Samantha ! What does Google say it was ?


No ! It wasn’t a big birdie !



It was a sparrow !



I’m glad that’s over with.

Got to go to the store now ! Bye !

Is there anything you need ?Β  Valium ?


I’ll leave you with these birdies.

beautiful !


Did I just do a cat post ? No way !

  1. Ralph, I enjoy your posts very much! Thanks for keeping your humor handy!


    • Hi Annie πŸ˜€ Thank you my friend. At least I didn’t stoop to kitty litter humour this post ! Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Stephanie πŸ˜€ Wow ! Thank you so much ! Did I come second out of an entry of one then ? πŸ˜‰ Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Georgia πŸ˜€ I know you do. Maybe I did this just for you πŸ˜€ Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Resa pussy cat πŸ˜€ I know ! I wasn’t going to do a cat post until the bird flew in. How could I resist such a gift for a post ! Take care of yourself. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  2. Samantha and Sonic will be reliving this for a long time! I’m glad you were able to catch and release the little sparrow. oxo πŸ™‚ ❀


    • Hi Yvonne πŸ˜€ I’m glad I caught it as well, though my cats don’t attack birds as I think they are just as frightened as the bird. That’s from past experience when birds have settled on my balconies.
      Do you remember this song, “I’m only a poor little sparrow”. Those kids must be in their late 40s now. Ralph xox ❀

    • Hi Shey πŸ˜€
      I agree. The typing cat is fabulous !
      You threw a curve ball at me. I was just about to publish this post and up popped a new post from you. So I had to do a quick change of the link. Oh, you are a troublesome lady ! πŸ˜‰
      All is quiet here as I hope it is there with you my friend. Ralph xox ❀

  10. Ralph, I love this post. My cats have been there and done that, so I understand the chaos.
    We have also had an occasional chipmunk wander in. That is worse because the poor thing can’t fly to the safety of the ceiling. I lock my protesting kitties in the bathroom and shoo our visitor to safety.


    • Hello Mary πŸ˜€ Wow ! You do have kitty shenanigans ! I’m glad you returned the invaders to safety. Ralph xox ❀


  11. Nooooo you didn’t, it was a fabulous lovely cat post and I enjoyed all the little feline films and pictures, thanks πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ !


  12. Delightful read. Rug Armageddon. That’s hilarious. Your window view took my breath away. I’m officially in love with your kitties. Thank you for rescuing a song bird. Our cats bring us lizards. I’ve got my plastic containers at the ready for a scoop and release.


    • Hello Alys πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for visiting with a plethora of remarks within your comment. I must give you a blanket thank you from me and the lizards πŸ˜€ Ralph xox ❀


      • You’re welcome. It’s always a treat discovering new and clever blogs. Alas, I wish I had fewer responsibilities so that I could simply read all day long. That said, I would have nothing to write about. It’s a vicious circle, really. πŸ˜‰

  15. πŸ™‚ all that cat drama over a sparrow! Cats are such interesting personalities. We have four and the other day there was a cat fight over a towel that smelled like catnip. Luckily most of the four are scaredy cats so the brawl lasted for just a few seconds before everyone went scurrying away.

  17. This reminds me of when 2 birds came into our (previous house that we lived in. They made there way in from an open vent on the roof into the basement. When I went down there for who knows what – I noticed them & they were flying around like crazy. I thought that they were going to attack me. So – I ran back to the main floor & shut the door. I got distracted & forgot about them. A few days later I went back to the basement & both were dead at the foot of the steps. I was creeped out.
    I think I’m going to have nightmares about this tonight. Eeek!

    • Hello RoSy πŸ˜€ What a sad story ! This sort of thing makes one feel so guilty. I should ask for forgiveness and let it go. Next time will be so different. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  18. I love the way you put this post together. What is that little round orange thing about half way down? It looks like the rear-end of an orple? I’m thinking it is a candle?


    • Hi Marcy πŸ˜€ Thank you. It is a candle. My extension has a green and orange colour scheme. I am surprised it hasn’t melted over the summer. Ralph xox ❀

  20. Fabulous! I recall this happening once some decades ago when I was a wee shoot. I told Sir a bird would warble inside if he left a screen-less window open and sure enough! Cats, rugs and bird soaring everywhere! Sir fainted and me mum chortled as she did the dash for all the windows with me. A fuzzy yellow bumble-bee wafted in, too. I caught the bee and set it free. I adore bees, they perch happily on my shoulder constantly. The bird sailed out again after her aerial tour.

    Brilliant post! And wonderful tenderness on your part to capture the wee flighty creature and to set her free, out into that wild autumnal sky. Fabulous cat post, indeed. Cheers,

    Autumn Jade


    • Hello Autumn Jade πŸ˜€ It’s so lovely to hear from you again. And what a lovely comment ! You always have a good tale within you and tell it well. I am so pleased to hear that your bird escaped back into the wild. I’ll be over to visit your blog soon. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀
